exponent of a prime
I am newbie in SAGE and here. My apologies for any mistake. This is an easy question.
Is there a command that for an integer $m$ and a prime number $p$ returns the exponent of $p$ in $m$?
If not, I would like if the following definition can be improved.
def exponent(p,m): v=m sol=0 while v%p==0: v=v/p sol=sol+1 return sol
